Sightseer 33C --placing an order Any input?

Wife and I have fallen in love with the Sightseer 33C and believe we have done our homework.

We are in the process of placing a factory order and have our 2009 OUTLOOK 31C up for sale until the 33C arrives and then will probably trade it in.

Does anyone have any experiences, comments or insights into the 33C, particularly the 2012? (there were some minor changes between 2011 and 2012).

Thanks!

Before you jump... check out the new Bounder 33C.

Just to make sure

We where at the same place you are now last year we ordered our Sightseer in March of last year and got it 9 weeks later a extra week for full body paint. Got vin after 6 weeks.We put 6,000 miles on ours the first year and had some problems but things like tv and rear camera.We looked for a long time at the 33c . We liked it a lot but you need to spend time in it with all slides in. We had a 2003 Sightseer for over 5 years bought used and liked it so much we special ordered this one a 2011 Sightseer 35J with the bunks.When we travel we some times stop at a Fling Jays or Walmart to get 7 hrs of sleep we do not like to un hook the toad and set up at a campground for such a small amount of time. So with the slides all in we did not like the 33c because it was real tight to live in for a overnight stop. That said if you all ways stay at a campground with full hook up and never stop at a Walmart then this is a great floor plan.We loved our old one .But the new one has a lot more options than are2003 did. We and are still learning about some of them like the Inverter ,Motor Aid , Jacks , and much more.It seemed like 9 months not 9 weeks but after you order it the time will pass.We made a change on week 7 but after that it would be ruff. We got the Euro Chair option. You said that some changes from 2011 to 2012 . What I like in the 2012 is the new front head lights new recliner and two more 12 volt plugs in the dash. We only have one and have to plug in our break buddy and Garmin in two plug. The work station for the lap top is nice two. I think the Sightseer is the best one on the market and it is a great Coach for the money. We got almost all of the options on ours and if you look at the Adventure the next step up in a gas coach there is not that much difference for the extra cost. If you have questions feel free to email me . Good luck.

Thanks for the insights. We have looked closely at the Adventurer and Sightseer for months and agree with your conclusion. We like so many features of the 33C. Yes, it might be a little tight with the slides closed, but we usually stay at a local campground, so no problem. Not much time for long trips and staying at Walmart while working fulltime. The 35J is certainly another great choice.

While ours is the 2012 Itasca Sunova 33c, the main difference between them is the decor. The only thing that we can say anything about is that it is tight between the counter and recliner when the slide is in. I turn the recliner sideways and push it against the wall which helps. When we overnight a Walmart or truck stop I put the slide out about 4 inches, that is well within the mirror limits it is only slightly further than the awning arms. We got ours the first of August and have had it to FL to visit and are now in RGV, TX for the winter. We are very happy with it and would do it again. Our previous unit was an 06 Sunova 34A. We really like the dinnet/TV set up no more looking at a angle and up since the TV is across from the sofa and recliner. Ours has every option except king bed and satilite. We would get the same setup again. We really like the vinyl floor just swifer it.

We purchased a 2012 33C. We have the tv over the buffet which we really like because we are looking straight on, not looking up or sitting sideways. Really like the 3 slides and the way things are thought out, 22.5 inch wheels seem to ride better than our coachman with 19.5 wheels.
Wife likes the kitchen counter layout and ordered without the gas oven but with the microwave/convection oven which gives more drawer space.
I also like that the 33C has smaller black tank and a larger grey tank since the gray fills up fast. We tailgate so the tank arrangement is good for that. Also have the TV outside for tailgating but none in the bedroom.

Really like the roller shades and the solar shades much better than the old according type.
Wife ask for a counter top that was flush over the stove like the Adventurer has. This was a special order, they lower the stove just bit and the Coran insert is flush with the countertop, they now have the drawings for it so you can get that if you want.

So far we are very pleased with the 33C engineering and workmanship.
